*Then of course there are questions to be answered. This is for you all to get to know a little more about me, and I look forward to seeing your responses as well.
Favourite colour? I have many. I really like aqua blue, yellow and green.
Favourite animal? Dogs! I have a puppy. I am forever amazed at her loyalty and affection. They are such amazing creatures.
Favourite number? 3 – because my birthday, my husband, my dog AND 2 of our kids birthdays are all on the 3rd! 3 is the magic number!
Favourite non-alcoholic drink? Ginger beer, iced tea, iced coffee with lots of cream on top, milk shakes. I should say mineral water shouldn’t I? Life is far too short to just sip water!
Favourite alcoholic drink? Red wine and to get the party started ‘Scottish style’ – rum with diet coke and ice.
Facebook or Twitter? I have never got into Twitter, but I keep trying as it is a useful tool for promoting my work. At one point I thought I would need to go into ‘Facebook rehab’ as I was becoming addicted! I have stepped back a lot. I am not enjoying it so much. I don’t think it is healthy. Social media can be very useful but it has its downsides. I think it is better to chat to people face to face – if possible. You know, really make a connection and look into a persons eyes.
My passions? My family, my writing, photography, discovering new books, shopping (I’m a woman!), travelling – I want to see as many new countries as possible!
Giving or receiving gifts? A bit of both. It is nice to treat someone you love. That’s a lovely feeling. It is also nice to receive something. I appreciate the thought.
Favourite city? Singapore – okay so it’s a state island but the city is amazing to walk around and so clean, safe. Love that place. I’ve been a few times now. The airport is amazing too. Their airport is calm and organised – it is insane how pleasing and easy everything is!
Favourite TV shows? Modern Family is amusing. I am not someone who has box sets of all the latest hit TV shows. I do collect movies though. I love 80′s movies. I recently watched Ghost Busters. Love it! Not very high brow, but hey we all need to relax the brain and just chill out.
My Nominees: Coming soon!
